Best Artsy Dentist's Office: Alpine Dental, Dr. Merrill & Linda Russell

Best Artsy Dentist's Office: Alpine Dental, Dr. Merrill & Linda Russell
PHOTO BY Todd V. Wolfson

The waiting room of Alpine Dental near the University of Texas is full to the rafters with paintings and jewelry designed by Linda Russell. Peruse it while you wait for dental hygienist Linda to clean your teeth. Then her husband Dr. Merrill Russell will be ready to advise you on the future of your chompers. Did we mention that he doesn't have perfect teeth? Somehow that's reassuring, as is the ever-friendly atmosphere. At least once a year the office turns into an official art show with wine, cheese, and laughter. Ask to be put on the invite list.
